They address both the role of physical activity in these individual's lives and the types of activity most likely to be useful. They cover the experience of mental health problems, processes of recovery, research in the area of physical activity, and what is missing from research; stories of individuals who have experienced mental health problems and the effects of physical activity; and different settings and factors, the needs of women, providing social support, and practitioner views."
